. so basically, nobody could have done it better than detweiler. got it done defensively. detweiler was the shining star early. bullpen took over late. how about desmond? top of the 9th, he doesn't make it play, the cardinals take the lead. he lays out and makes the great catch over his shoulder and sets the stage for jayson werth and that epic 13-pitch at bat. on the 13th pitch, the man making $126 million, worth every penny. there it goes, into the bullpen and the nats celebrate a walkoff win. their first home win in the history of the nationals here, which means we've got a game five tonight. if you can believe it, gio gonzalez, the other ace of the nats, will take to the hill tonight. 8:37is the first pitch. we do have people that are already lining up, trying to get the standing room only tickets. got about, i'd say five or six or seven now, the crowd starting to grow as we hit 7:00. they're waiting for the tickets to go on sale. and no, tony and wisdom, if he's still there, i'm not waiting in line for wisdom. maybe tony and allison, but i don't know about wisdom yet. >> all ri

today. the ads paid for by the american freedom defense initiative say "in any war between civilized men and the savage, support the civilized man. support israel, defeat jihad ." many people say they're offensive because they basically equate muslims with savages, citing concern from three u.s. security agencies, metro wanted to delay displaying the ads until after the protests in the middle east over the "innocence of muslims" film subsided. the sponsor sued to put them up immediately and won. riders have mixed feelings. >> in our civil society, the first amendment has the greatest protection. the government needs to protect the speaker and for those who say they want to engage in violence, we'll arrest you for engaging in the violence. >> they should be allowed on free speech grounds, but i think it's irresponsible. >> it's kind of a big thing to call somebody a savage, but this is america. it's freedom of speech. >> reporter: again, we don't know what time those ads are going to be posted today. metro did say it was not going to appeal the ruling and would comply with the judge's

that has put the obama team on the defensive, very big on the defensive. so this media narrative has changed and the media narrative has very big power in helping people process what's going , see who's up, see who's down and understand who has the real momentum in the race and that can make a difference come election day. >>reporter: what about the vice presidential debate that's going to take place tonight, how significant is that going to be? >>reporter: well, it may -- >> it may be bigger this time, in part because joe biden has to sort of recover some ground that was perceived to have been lost by the president in the first debate. in essence, joe biden has to take his argument to paul ryan and say you guys aren't moderates, you're more conservative than you say, now defend your record, we don't have to defend ours. and i think they're going to try to turn the tables in this debate, but paul ryan is not just going to be sitting there passively because he knows what happened to the president the last time. so he's going to push back and put all the resnsibility on this administra

interview with bob costas shortly before the trial. this is consistent. from a defense perspective, it's a horrible move. i think he added a good 10 to 20 years to his sentence, because he's blaming these people. what judges want to hear in a sentencing hearing is remorse. i was convicted, the process was fair, now i'm going to do my time. that might reduce the sentence. but this is not -- making it worse for him. >> the tone of it, basically saying i was wrongfully convicted of these disgusting acts, i think he said disgusting. he's also expected to speak today. might we hear more of the same or do you think perhaps the lawyers have said, might want to change up the conversation a little bit in court today? >> you know, the judge made it clear that the sentencing phase is not a time to relitigate the case. if he wants to make an appeal be he can do that in a court of law. but this is a time to really express remorse for what he did. i don't expect that from him. but he's not going to be allowed to say there was some grand conspiracy between 10 victims and the media and penn state and ev

it did seem like the president was trying to play defense and not make any mistakes because he was up at least in this race pretty handily in the swing states. not mentioning the 47% in that video, that was stunning. >> is it too late and later debates to come back with that now? you know, i liken it to a boxer almost. go back to your corner, you figure out what you didn't do right perhaps. but at that point is it too late? has america forgotten about the 47%? >> no, i don't think so. i think he can do that. not as effectively, because the first debate is usually the more watched debate. president george w. bush had a poor performance against john kerry and came back strong. last night the president was mocking his own performance. you have to accept you didn't do well, and come back and bring it to romney. but he's going to have to do that. >> okay. mitt romney, on the other hand, had a strong showing. what does he need to do to maintain any momentum he might have picked up? >> i think this presents the romney campaign with something they needed. they needed to hit the reset butto
